A little more couldn't hurt...

I know I rambled on about Alice in Wonderland last week, but I just can't get enough. So I apologise to those people out there that dislike the Lewis Caroll masterpiece... Such as my boyfriend. He hates Alice in Wonderland. He also hates strange remixes that are on the interesting side of things. So if you're of the same animatory and musical preferences as he is, you might want to skip the play button on this one, and go iron your shirts for work tomorrow.

Okay, maybe that was a little harsh. But don't say I didn't warn you.

It's pretty amazing, considering it's composed entirely from the soundtrack of Disney's Alice in Wonderland. Just like the video is made from clips of the movie, too. It's not just a strange, drug inspired trance track like the rest of the genre. It actually has substance*!

As for my holidays, I have been very happy sleeping 12 hours at a time, working minimal amounts and slowly transforming my room from a miniature rubbish tip into the coziest, cleanest cardboard box a hobo could ever dream of! My room is really very tiny, and the addition of a desk has left me with about 1.5 square meters of floor space. Floor space is for losers. But it does mean that I can't dance embarrassingly badly to loud music without injuring myself anymore :(

Actually, that's probably a good thing. I'll have to ask Nick which is the lesser of his dislikes... Me dancing to music that is ninety shades darker than I am, or listening to trancey stuff mixed from Alice in Wonderland?

I guess I'll have to let you know.

*yeah, I know, I know. It wasn't vaguely funny. I'm sorry.

Last day of term...

Well, in under an hour it will be.

Despite the fact that I have yet to finish my photography assignment, I am here, writing. But, to be honest, I'm very excited about my two weeks of holidays. But, in the meantime, here is a snippet from our most recently completed assignment:

Chasing Cheshire Cats

It's a book cover design, I know this doesn't show that particularly well, but it was fun to make. I decided to create the cover for a commentary on the life of Lewis Carrol, of which there are already many books on the subject. Or perhaps I am anticipating the release of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Boy, is that going to be an interesting film or what?

I have also recently jumped on the musical bandwagon and joined, which is a great tool for stalking other people's taste in music and then copying them cause it's cool. I'm also rambling about this because I really don't want to do any coursework. But still, you should check it out. It's not like you're the one with the assignments due or anything.

But seriously, it's pretty cool.

I guess I should go, I'm going to have to get up super early in the morning. Although 'm not sure if I'm physically capable of such things... I certainly haven't been, lately...

Thank goodness for holidays.
